Wouldn't it be great if you could visit dozens of yard sales, all in one place, without driving around town all day long? Now you can! Volunteers with the Abraham Connection Homeless Shelter are organizing a communitywide yard sale on Saturday, June 3, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the parking lots on 6th and Main streets in Delta (old Chaco building and the office of Edward Jones -- Isaiah St. Peter).
The event is an opportunity for sellers to showcase their wares to a huge audience, all in one location. A 10x10 space costs just $10. Spaces are limited, available on a first-come, first-served basis, and must be reserved and paid in full prior to setting up your vendor spot. Though this event is mainly for those wishing to sell or buy yard sale/flea market type items, organizers are allowing for-profit businesses, food vendors, artists/crafters and home-based businesses to purchase spots as well, for a higher rate.
All fees will go toward the operations and direct guest services at the Abraham Connection Homeless Shelter. Last season (Oct. 15, 2016 - April 30, 2017), volunteers provided emergency food and overnight shelter to over 150 individuals and provided over 2,660 bednights. The Abraham Connection is a community mission, relying on the generosity of volunteers to provide case management, overnight shelter, meals, administrative work, and other roles in order to serve those most in need.

On May 1, the Cedaredge board of trustees met for a special meeting to appropriate an additional $35,000 from reserves as a loan to the golf course fund.
These funds will be used to purchased a used turf utility vehicle, a spray rig, and to make improvements to the kitchen and dining area of the restaurant.
